Though the risk of showers is looming high on the fifth and the deciding One-Day International to be played on 29 October 2016, at the coastal town of Vishakhapatnam, The AP Cricket Association has made all the arrangements to make the game proceed without any hindrance.

After the lacklustre performance of Indian Team at Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s hometown of Ranchi, the Indian Team will be seething to come down heavily against the Kiwi’s team.

The spirits of the visiting team must be very high; they should not underestimate the Indian team which is at their best if their ego and pride has been bruised.

The fifth and the decider will be played at the ACA-VCDA stadium in the port city of Vishakhapatnam.

If the rain gods are willing there could be a match today or else both India and New Zealand will be sharing the trophy with two wins each. However, New Zealand will be sorry if this happens because they will have lost the chance of winning a series in India. The cyclone Kyant could spoil this party because it is some time since an ODI has been played in this coastal city.

Both the teams have arrived in the town and will be having a short session of net practice. The crowds at Vizag are undoubtedly looking forward to a great match regardless of the outcome.

What is most exciting is the fact that this match will be the decider for the series. Indians are going great guns and have already won the Test Series 3.0, and the hosts will be hoping for a 3-2 ODI victory.
